Although there were no evidence of who set the building on fire, protesters were held responsible because of their interference on stopping the extinguish of the building and cheering on the fire. Many were arrested that night. On May 3, 1,000 Ohio National Guardsmen occupied the campus. Governor Rhodes held a press conference that provoked many protesters, calling them “un-american, revolutionaries set on destroying higher education in Ohio”. On May 4, General Robert Canterbury wanted to ban the afternoon protesting rally because he believed that the tension and violence from previous days would rise.
Indifference, the insensitivity, the carelessness, the alienation of human thoughts, actions, and words are willingly a danger to all. This world has been and continues to be scarred with constant, horrific, deadly, and painful events that affect hundreds of families. The unexpected mass shootings, school gun-downs, ramming of crowds, the bombing of a populated area, and dozens more, are now expected to appear in our news feed, but serious changes to prevent these disasters rarely occur. But the question is, how many more children have to die? How many more families need to be destroyed?
Because of this challenge to the book, the principal decided that all questionable content regarding student curriculum will be disclosed to parents beforehand. In 2003, the book was challenged and then completely banned in George County, Mississippi. The copious amounts of profanity and sexual content lead to this unfortunate conclusion. “Using profanity was against school policy and having the book in the library made newly elected school board member, Larry McDonald, feel uncomfortable.”
The football team of the high school appeared “to have been ground zero for the scandal.” This resulted in a forfeit of their Friday game and a parental meeting to address these shocking events. These parents talked about the problems that are being exploited to the public and the lies that are being told. It is said that the children will be prosecuted with misdemeanors and the adults could be getting sexual offender charges depending on the photos they have acquired. With that being said, over 100 students could end up with misdemeanors because of their actions. Law enforcement does not know if this is a good prosecution because most of the student involved sent pictures of themselves.
in the Bergeron family house, while Harrison’s mother and father were watching the channel on which Harrison was killed, the television tube burnt out about 10 seconds after Harrison was killed and Mrs. Bergeron/Hazel, automatically forgot what she saw and was unable to inform her husband, George, of what happened. So this could show that the government is also able to influence the minds of the citizens and make them believe and remember what the government wants them to believe and remember. What the evidence is trying to show is that the government is willing to kill off, inflict pain upon, and especially limit the potential of the civilians that live under them in order to maintain equality. The government rules with an iron fist and no one denies them without facing the consequences. Kurt killed Harrison off to display this to the reader.
Allowing children to be exposed to this type of scenery caused trauma most people can not recover from, especially at a young age. For instance, in an elementary school in 2012 a shooting occurred, ¨On December 14, 2012….20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children aged 6 and 7, at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, before killing himself¨ (Should the Government Restrict Access to Assault Weapons?). Twenty Young students were killed and the rest traumatized due to the fact that this man could get his hands on military- grade weapons. Furthermore, joyous events and family outings are turned into fears and doubts of leaving home when one can obtain ammunition as such. In Colorado, while families were watching a movie, twelve were killed and
This display of pure savagery showed how demoralizing and dehumanizing this conflict had become, and added to the ever growing anti-war sentiment. This photo was another example of how the war was consistently going against traditional American ideologies, and convinced the American people even more that this violence needed to
Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85). This is not surprising given the fact that the teachers, such as Asha, often ignore their responsibilities and do not go to school (Boo 33). Similarly, educational policies of non-governmental agencies do not always benefit students in need. Oftentimes an institution receives money, starts working, and begins teaching children. However, as soon as the photos are taken and necessary inspections are passed both funds and a person responsible for them disappear (Boo 171).
Many people in today’s society allow the extreme fear of a terrorist attack to control their actions and perceptions. People assume that because someone is Islam or Muslim that they must be a terrorist, and they become weary of them to protect themselves. These situations demonstrate how permitting self-preservation to lead to hysteria causes destruction and hurt throughout the community. If not fixed, these situations will lead the destruction of the world. The theme of hysteria and self-preservation is evident throughout The Crucible and in real life.
Another mass shooting has recently taken place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Tragically harming the most innocent members of our society, our children, it has left all of us in unbearable agony. Widespread media coverage followed suit as usual, yet such pointed attention apparently could not culminate in substantial dialogue. One mostly hears reactionary outcries right after each of these shocking events, calling out for urgent strengthening of hard security measures at hand without any reference to informed analysis supported by evidence. The proposal for arming teachers and staff as an emergency measure is definitely an example of this sort of reactionary approach, which does not leave much room for substantial dialogue based on comprehensive analysis.
